“Yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Loved the selection of good, healthy food. The portions are really big, so come hungry.

I got a chromium smoothie that was super delicious. It added a a strong energy boost to the meal and my day.

It was very busy when we got there. You wait in a line to order, and then get the food delivered to your table when it is ready.

Related to service, I found it interesting that the order taker was very friendly and said thank you to all of the people who placed a paper bill into the tip jar. After I ordered, I had a good amount of change I put into the tip jar. There was no thank you for my tip! Thank yous were only available for paper bill tippers.

Oh well, the food was good.

“Healthy food at affordable prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

After a long day of driving, we stopped by for some nourishment. Boy! It's just what the doctor ordered! The freshly made vegetable juice menu was extensive and reasonably priced. Rice bowls and turkey melt sandwich were also amazing! The food was so good that we came back for breakfast before leaving.

“Good for you and tastes great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

South Lake Tahoe in general is old time. I was disappointed at the old feel and slighly behind and dirty. The constant signage of you cant park or park only for 2 hrs hit a nerve. This restaurant somehow fit in the old and new, menu good today, tomorrow and everyday. In other words, it made the frustrations of this town go away with its healthy menu and caring service. I ordered the most popular sandwich: turkey with all the sprouty toppings. The chips are not the GMO regulars but made out of sesame that were surprisingly good. Beware: they are a cash only facility, although it wont break the bank at $8-10 pp. The atmosphere is somewhat like an upscale fast food joint without the fast food.

This little gem is cheap healthy and yummy. What more could you want? Great selections for vegetarians, vegans and they also do turkey and tuna.

“Good options for vegans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

On a recent trip to Lake Tahoe, we had lunch at Sprouts in South Lake Tahoe. My daughter is a vegan and sometimes it's hard to find a place where she can eat. Sprouts is the place. Lots of vegan choices. Turkey and tuna options for us non-vegans. The place was packed inside and out, usually a good sign. One caviat, bring cash, they don't accept plastic. But shouldn't be a problem since our lunch for 3 with drinks was around $25.
